Asian American Resource Center – The Woven Sounds

March 26, 2022 at 3 PM CST

“Classical musicians of East and South East Asian descent have been deeply involved and devoted to Western classical music for decades. However, their work and representation are often neglected and underappreciated. In this afternoon concert, The Woven Sounds piano duet and Dr. Chia-Wei Lee, baritone, will perform music works composed by classical composers of East and South East Asian descent in diverse styles and settings. The program consists of works inspired by famous traditional stories such as Butterfly Lovers (China) to innovative new compositions, which aim to bring the audience a music feast. This event is free and open to all ages to attend. This event is in person and no virtual option. Masks are required. Learn more about the Asian American Resource Center by visiting www.austintexas.gov/aarc

Tiemann Art Gallery – Classical Sound “Something In The Wind”

Sun, March 27, 2022 at 4:00 PM CDT

“Doors open at 3:00 pm; wine will be served. Concert begins at 4:00 pm. These incredible artists will perform works by Camille Saint-Saëns, Claude Debussy, Germaine Tailleferre and Francis Poulenc. Meet the artists after the concert.”

Ground Floor Theatre – Amadeus

March 24 – April 9, 2022

“Antonio Salieri, the religiously devoted court composer of the Austrian Emperor, still waits for the heavenly gift he most desires: true musical brilliance. Then Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, a crass and rowdy young prodigy, arrives in Vienna determined to make a splash. Awestruck by his genius and seized by obsessive jealousy, Salieri begins a war with Mozart, with music, and ultimately, with God.

This Tony Award-winning play features musical interludes with Mozart’s beloved compositions. Penfold’s production will thrill audiences with two distinct approaches. For one performance only, the music will be performed live by 40 members of the Central Texas Philharmonic. In the remaining performances, audiences will be treated to a “Mozart remix” by a local composer.”

Redeemer Presbyterian Church – amarcord | Restless Love

Friday, March 25, 2022 at 7:30 PM

“Five voices which have become legendary for their homogenous sound. Five singers who jointly explore the character of each song in order to bring it to life for the audience. Five singers so perfectly in tune with each other that their ‘vocal instrument’ spans the range of an entire orchestra. Listening to amarcord reminds us that singing is the most natural form of music – produced by the body for the human soul.”

Luck Ranch – Luck Presents: Willie Nelson at Home Live From Luck, TX with Drayton Farley and Drew & Ellie Holcomb

Saturday, March 26 at 6:30pm CDT

“With a seven-decade career, Willie Nelson has earned every conceivable award as a musician and amassed reputable credentials as an author, actor, and activist. He continues to thrive as a relevant and progressive musical and cultural force. In recent years, he has delivered more than a dozen new albums, released a Top 10 New York Times‘ bestsellers book, again headlined Farm Aid, an event he co-founded in 1985, been honored by the Library of Congress with their Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, received his 5th degree black belt in Gong Kwon Yu Sul, headlined the annual Luck Reunion food and music festival during SXSW, launched his cannabis companies Willie’s Reserve and Willie’s Remedy, and graced the covers of Rolling Stone and AARP The Magazine. In July 2020, Willie released his album First Rose of Spring – an atmospheric soulful showcase of beautifully-written songs and poignant performances. September 2020 brought a memoir with his sister and pianist Bobbie Nelson titled,Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of The Family Band. For 2021, he released a new studio album in February —That’s Life, Willie’s second album of standards and classics made famous by Frank Sinatra (his first, 2018’sMy Way, earned Willie the Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Solo Album). The two legends were friends, musical colleagues, and mutual admirers of each other’s work. In June 2021, a collection of his thoughts on America, family, faith and music hits shelves as a new book titled Willie Nelson’s Letters to America.These creative endeavors as well as new songs and performances that add to his classic catalog, find Willie Nelson rolling at an artistic peak, writing and singing and playing with the seasoned wit and wisdom that comes from the road.”
